Re: Wheel spacers opinions

dam im looking forward to somone installing the spacers lol
i personally would only lower the front to give it even a more raking effect and then put spacers in the rear, but i like my old school hot rods.

I'm no good with suspension, plus this is my 1st mustang
You standard mounts should suffice for the lowering everything is pretty much bolt up and go unless you have a thought of adjusting your own camber etc

I went ahead and ordered them, because I am changing the struts it's best to change the mounts... I ordered them yesterday from AM and already got them today.... They look pretty heavy duty compared to the standard ones I don't regret it... Like I said I don't want to have to take it to the shops repeatedly I hate anyone other than me touching my car... I'm anal like that :-/ mine isn't a DD and I baby it

Yea I finally did the drop but from an angle the wheels are extremely tucked in :-/ I made a drastic decision and ordered new wheels cuz I'm not crazy about how spacers work

These are actually 19x8.5 with 245/45ZR19 all around, I know it doesn't look as good as the brembo package wheels. But I ordered the 20" staggered Foose wheels. Kind of a drastic decision, but I was disappointed with the look after the drop :-/

Understandable bud yeah of u would have jumped to 9.5 u would have gotten it pretty flush the 20s will do it but rubber is very expensive at 19 I only imagine what it is at 20

I might be wrong but I do believe that our brembo pkg wheels are 9"

Yea 9" is pretty good, I got the 19x8.5 but I don't wanna deal with spacers... I finally dropped my stang 2 days ago and was disappointed on how my wheels are really tucked in :-/ looks horrible to me... so I took the plunge and ordered a new set of 20" staggered wheels

I may have gotten some bad gouge of the Internet for 9.5 not sure can't find the wheel specs online right now regardless making a drop with that extra inch makes the flush appearance work for the rims and body of the car
